We cannot eat money, but....

By Sari Bernardo | CEO

Greetings friend,

We cannot eat money, but with money we can get a land where food and forests grow, where native wildlife can live in balance and where children can observe and learn how food comes to their table - and be mesmerized to see how much can actually grow in the forest! Wouldn't that be great! We think so, and that is still the dream and idea why Romi's Way is so keen on getting this project funded. To purchase a small forest land where urban children from Coimbra and other cities in Portugal can come and spend a day to get their hands dirty, be at awe of the diversity of species (plants and animals) that they can spot and learn that forests can truly be agricultural heavens too with mushrooms, berries, fruits, edible flowers and even vegetables growing there.

In additions, as recent  studies have shown, children who can touch soil (on natural environment- not the same as sticking your fingers on your houseplants inside) on daily bases have way stronger immunity and wellbeing compared to those who have no access to it. And this makes us dream even bigger and wish that every urban child would have an opportunity to play outdoors on a forest or other natural park setting for at least 15minutes per day.

We are so grateful for your support, and keep you updated if our big-dream gets closer to become true and we could have our Agri-forest project started.

With thanks,

Romi's Way team
